In Early Structures, students learn basic structures concepts with hands-on exploration! Concepts include balance within structures, ways of building structures, and stability. By building a variety of models, children can determine what is the best shape for the job. this class helps students delevops and design using problem-solving skills. In this course students experience pulleys, gears, and wheels and axles while exploring energy, buoyancy, and balance by building fun and simple models like a seesaw, a rolling vehicle, a spinning top, a raft, and many more.eight engaging 45-minute lessons, each with extension activities of up to 20 minutes, and four additional open-ended problem-solving activities designed to allow students to explore, investigate, and solve tasks related to mechanical principles.

Students will build and explore machines and mechanisms, investigate motorized machines, calibrate and capture wind, and study gearing mechanisms. Students will create 10 principal models and 18 main models. This course will give students a fundamental understanding of simple machines, structures, and mechanisms. Students will investigate the principles of simple machines, mechanisms, and structures; experiment with balanced and unbalanced forces and friction; measure distance, time, speed, and weight; and much more.

31 Weeks

10+

Students will explore power systems and components, sequence and control, pressure, prototyping, kinetic and potential energy, and much more. Students will explore 14 principal model activities that introduce students to the basics of pneumatics. In addition, four main models and activities and two additional open-ended problem-solving activities thoroughly educate students about pneumatics. The course features 31 specialty elements, including pumps, cylinders, valves, an air tank, tubes, and a manometer.

In Beginning Renewable Energy, students will explore power systems and components, sequence and control, pressure, students will explore renewable energy sources; investigate energy supply, transfer, accumulation, conversion, and consumption; and use measurements and data analysis to describe and explain outcomes through hands-on activities and exciting, real-life models.

TBA

12+

In Renewable Energy ,students achieve an understanding of how energy is developed from the Sun, wind, and water. Solar energy can be captured by the LEGO Solar Cell and used to power a model Ferris wheel, solar car, or test car. Or, your students can watch wind or water energy in action by creating a windmill or waterwheel.

TBA

13 Renewable Energy II

12+

In this course, students will applly what they learned in Renewable Energy I into buildin a Fuel Cell car. With the more than 30 experiments and demonstrations students learn how a reversible fuel cell works and how it creates energy. They also understand the physics upon which this future technology is based.

The Young Inventor’s course is an innovative and engaging curriculum introducing creative robotics to students in middle school. Your students will use humanities as a foundation for the exploration of past, present, and future inventions.

TBA TBA

In this couese students will learn about Voltage, Current, Resistance and how they relate to each other. In their lesson about Resistance they will learn the Resistance color code. They will also learn about capacity and how batteries work. Further in their lesson they will discuss Light omitting Diodes and how they work. They will apply all these things together and learn how to apply them to the OHM's Law. Ultimately students will apply the OHM's Law to create a circuit of thier own. Students will learn the beginning of robot buidling. Together they will learn to how to build and program the START Robot in the PICAXE programming language. Each student will learn about the different components that the a robot consist of. This course is offered to Troops/Scouts who are attempting to obtain the Boy Scouts of America Robotics Merit Badge. In this 2 session class the scout will accomplish task Numbers 4 & 5. Tasks 1-3, and 6 & 7 will need to be done before and discussed with the Merit Badge counselor provided by Eaglesnest Robotics to get the the sign off. Provided will be a Robotics Merit Badge Tasks 1-3, 6, and 7 of Counselor and all Robotics Equipment needed for Robotics Merit Madge the BSA Merit Badge tasks. worksheet
